In this brief devblog, we would like to share with you some details and a panorama of the new PvP map, which will appear in the game with the next major update.
The new location is located near the maps that you are already familiar to you — “Powerplant”, “Chemical plant” and “Factory”. The most observant players will even notice the buildings from the “Powerplant” map in the background. Stylistically, the location continues the theme of industrial buildings and factories.
One of the location’s main feature is its asymmetry, which becomes most apparent closer to the center of the map.
The map offers excellent opportunities for long-range builds. For example, there is a long corridor without any additional covers, which can be seen on the panorama. It allows you to control the map and conduct sniper duels or shoot enemy vehicles that are trying to break through to your position.
The builds designed for medium or close range will be able to use the flanking bypasses which, however, cannot guarantee their safety.
Both teams will have access to elevated areas like the one in the picture on the left. They open a view to the central part of the map and allow you to partially control the passages from the enemy side. But don’t forget about the opponents who can outflank you!
The central area of the map is a fairly large arena, where the proper use of terrain, covers and vegetation can generate a lot of unique combat situations.
Even if you find yourself out in the open, you will most likely have options to hide from enemy fire by using hollows in the landscape.
The location will also feature fairly narrow and defensible passageways. Fans of unexpected appearances and sudden base captures should definitely pay attention to these routes.
Various shelters and covers will also be placed at the bases. They will be useful both when capturing an enemy point, so you can hide from shells and stall for time, and while defending your own base when it’s being overrun by enemies.
We hope you enjoy the new location! Tomorrow we will continue to discuss the new features of the next season. Stay tuned so you don’t miss anything!
